Lew Bryson's Tasting Whiskey


Tasting Whisky An Insider's Guide to the Unique Pleasures of the World's Finest SpiritsFred Minnick says it best: Lew Bryson’s Tasting Whisky is “an instant whiskey classic that will make all whiskey geeks smarter than their friends.”Bryson reminds you of a kindly uncle, regaling you with stories and anecdotes while explaining the mysteries of whisky. And in doing so, he has written one of the most original and entertaining whisky books I've read.Tasting Whiskey, subtitled An Insider’s Guide to the Unique Pleasures of the World’s Finest Spirits, is not about Scotch, bourbon or rye, but about whisky writ large. As managing Editor of Whisky Advocate magazine, Bryson is indeed an insider and he writes to inform and engage the reader.A wealth of easy to understand colour illustrations and photographs ensure the lessons are mastered effortlessly. Best of all, for this reviewer, Bryson really "gets" Canadian whisky."Tasting Canadian blended whiskies both before and after I fully understood how they were made and what they were intended to be has led me to reconsider some long-held prejudices about Canadian whisky, blended Scotch, and grain whisky. The frustrating thing now is encountering whisky drinkers who clearly still have those prejudices, and not being able to get through to them with my newfound enlightenment."This is an A-Z guide to whisky, and with its conversational style, Tasting Whiskey is just so engaging.Tasting Whiskey is available in book stores or from on-line sellers such as Amazon.http://www.amazon.ca/Tasting-Whiskey-Insiders-Pleasures-Spirits/dp/1612123015/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1403436039&sr=8-1&keywords=lew+bryson
